WTW has appointed Alain Dufraisse as managing director of its Luxembourg Captive and Insurance Management Solutions (CIMS) office.
Over a 30-year career, Dufraisse has held leadership positions in leading insurance management organisations, including Barents Re and Aon, and across various European domiciles, including the Isle of Man, Luxembourg, Ireland, Gibraltar, and Malta.
He has led the set-up, redomiciliation and ongoing management of many insurance and reinsurance companies, including open market carriers, captives, and protected cell companies.
In this newly-created role, he will report to Elizabeth Carbonaro, WTW CIMS regional lead for Western Europe, who said that Dufraisse will add strength to the in-domicile leadership team in Luxembourg and that his appointment reflects the importance WTW places on this major European jurisdiction.
“What really struck me during my first discussions with the WTW management was their listening skills, focus on people, and dedication to their clients’ needs,” said Dufraisse. “I am delighted to be joining WTW and am determined help grow its Luxembourg business significantly.”
